Feeling a discharge at the time of istinjaa

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If I avoid bad thoughts coming into my mind but felt a discharge being released during the time of istinja. 

1. Could I consider this to be madhi and not mani because I keep on checking and its creating a lot of doubts in my mind.

2. Usually when I’ve done istinja, a thought might enter my mind and I check to see if there is anything there, and there isn’t, but this time something came out and I didn’t check it because I always wipe and check and see a clear discharge. 



1. This is not mani.

2. Just wash the soiled area.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
